Highlighting works from the 1960s and early 1970s, this installation captures a pivotal moment in the history of American art. Works by Pop artists, including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Claes Oldenburg, are featured, as well as pieces by their predecessors, whose work resonates with Pop Art, such as Robert Rauschenberg.
Pop Art and Its Affinities also features paintings by Op Artists such as Edna Andrade, Richard Anuszkiewicz, and Josef Albers, who were among the first artists to base their work entirely upon optical impressions examined in the science of perceptual psychology, such as the after-image and chromatic vibration.
